From The City of Copperas Cove: 

BOIL WATER RESCIND NOTICE

On July 14, 2014 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required our public water system (City of Copperas Cove/PWS 0500001) to issue a Boil Water Notice (BWN) to inform our customers that due to the presence of contaminants or an interruption in service, water from our system must be boiled prior to consumption.

The City of Copperas Cove has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/ or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of July 16, 2014.

If a customer wishes to reach TCEQ, they may reach them at 512-239-4691.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact one of the following individuals:

1) Daniel Hawbecker/Water Superintendent at (254) 547-2416.

2) Daryl Uptmore/Public Works Director at (254) 547-0751.
